Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise Of The Dragons Brings Billy And Jimmy Back This Summer

The classic beat-’em-up franchise Double Dragon is coming back this summer, as Modus Games and Secret Base have announced Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise Of The Dragons for consoles and PC.

Rise Of The Dragons is a 2D side-scrolling beat-em-up featuring Billy and Jimmy Lee from the original Double Dragon games, along with 11 other playable characters. The list of playable heroes includes Marian, the damsel no longer in distress wielding a rocket launcher, and the brand-new Uncle Matin who uses a riot shield to soak up damage.


This new Double Dragon game features a new and unique mission select mechanic–the order in which players select missions will affect that mission’s length, number of enemies, and difficulty. Cash can also be earned with special KOs, which can then be used to purchase upgrades for future missions.

Double Dragon Gaiden is the first Double Dragon game since 2017’s Double Dragon IV. Characters from the franchise have made cameo appearances elsewhere however, with the most recent being Marian’s playable appearance in 2022’s River City Girls 2.

Double Dragon Gaiden: Rise of the Dragons will launch this summer for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
